Honestly though it would have been nice to see an integrated CSL-like ducktail for improved high speed downforce, but if they feel that the original lip is sufficient after all that wind tunnel testing, I'm not going to complain. I personally like my carbon fiber one from BMW Performance, shouldn't be hard to just fit it on. Since the hood and trunk lid are the same I don't see it being too difficult fitting carbon items from Vorsteiner, iCarbon, 3D Designs, or Seibon. The 1M is a mixed blessing: Its perfect for someone moving up to an M and loves the 1 series styling/dimensions, but also kind of disappoints those already coming from a 135i (especially those that already modified). I like it though and as I have always stated, if I were buying a car today the 1M would be highly considered and would be a much better starting point than a 135i. The premium between the two is what might deter some people though.
